Indispensable for Grapes, Raspberries and Vining Vegetables

The MAX Tapener® has been sold for over thirty years and proven itself to be an efficient, reliable tool. It is a great tool for training vines, for tying raspberries, tomatoes, trellised vegetables, etc. as well as training nursery stock or Christmas trees.

The Tapener uses a combination of tape and staples to tie plant material to trellis, string, stake, wire cage, etc. To use the Tapener, you simply push the material to be fastened into the jaws of the tool, then squeeze the handle tightly. This meters out tape, then cuts and staples the tape in one motion. The tool is very reliable and saves considerable time over hand-tying. It also makes efficient use of tying materials as you only use the amount needed to execute the tie.

The Tapener is available in two sizes. The 3704 HTB-2 is a the larger tool and is suitable for commercial growers. Tape comes in two thicknesses -- 8 MIL and 12 MIL -- and a roll of tape should make roughly 200 to 300 ties.

  • Takes 4-3⁄8″ diameter rolls
  • For tape, order MAX 3718 (8 MIL) or MAX 3720 (12 MIL)
  • For staples, order MAX 3708 (604 E-L)
  • Replacement blades: MAX 3711
  • Weight: 1.75 lbs.
